WILD BLUEBERRY SEASON

Look what I woke up to the other day!  DH had been out 'blueberrying'.  These are wild blueberries that grow all over this area.  These are from our property.
Here they are, all cleaned and dried, ready to eat.  Yum!

Wild blueberries are smaller than cultivated ones, so you get lots more nutrients per cup with the wild ones -- more flavor too.

We live in Michigan's Wild Blueberry Capital.  This past weekend was the annual Wild Blueberry Festival, featuring arts and crafts, entertainers, kids games, and of course many yummy wild blueberry treats.  A good time was had by all!

Yum! I remember as a young child, when we lived in Germany, in the early 70's, we would go to the forest and pick blueberries. I don't think many ever made it home.
